As we look for more ways to engage the student body during these challenging times, a fresh new co-ed option is now available and easy to join. All materials, communications, and finances are expertly coordinated by Mr. Draper and the other GHS Band Directors. GCISD health and safety guidelines will be followed at all times.

All equipment provided, no purchase necessary.
Camps are monthly after-school in an available gym / auditorium / cafeteria.

A great way to meet diverse friends and easily grow into the high school experience.
